A complete password management solution that allows users to reset
and change their password, and receive notification
about future password expiration
As SharePoint grows from a hobby for a handful of departments to a corporate-wide initiative for day-to-day activities, IT staff can
quickly become overwhelmed maintaining the expanding SharePoint farm. Why not relieve your staff of the mundane tasks of
maintaining users' passwords?
With the Password Management Toolkit, users now have the ability to maintain their own passwords, including changing their password,
resetting forgotten passwords, and receiving notification when their password is about to expire.
The Password Management Toolkit is a combination of Bamboo's four most popular administrative tools:
Password Change Web Part: Allow users to change their own passwords while
automatically adhering to your security policy.
Password Expiration Web Part: Notify users through email and/or
display through a Web Part when account password is approaching expiration.
Password Reset Web Part: Safely allow SharePoint users to reset their password
through various forms ID verification.
User Account Setup Web Part: Simultaneously create a new account in the
defined authentication provider and add that account to SharePoint while adhering to the security policies.
By combining these powerful self-service administrative Web Parts and the step-by-step guide to creating an effective password management solution,
users will be able to manage their own passwords faster.
If you host SharePoint sites for multiple clients, the Password Management Toolkit can save you a significant amount of time by allowing you to designate a User
Administrator at the client site as a point of contact for managing their own users and passwords.
Because you can restrict which users can create users, where users are created in Active Directory,
and to which SharePoint groups the new user can be assigned, you will not have to worry about an on-site
User Administrator or end-user gaining access to other SharePoint applications or private resources on your network.
If you are a SharePoint solution consultant creating proposals for and managing multiple custom SharePoint solutions, offering your customers the
time-saving, cost-effective features of "self-service" user account creation and password management shows that you are concerned about your clients'
time and that you are well-informed on the latest technology available to best meet your clients' needs.
Network Administrators for all sizes of companies, who manage a SharePoint portal for their entire company, also benefit from the
Password Management Toolkit. For users who need to manage their own SharePoint site on your portal, just set up a separate Active Directory organizational
unit specifically for these users, and configure the User Account Setup Web Part to create users only
for that organizational unit. Restrict who can
create users and the SharePoint groups to which they can assign new users. Then, set up Password Change and Password Reset to allow these users to manage their
